Aysons is a fantastic free camping area along the Campaspe River, 40 minutes from Bendigo. The campground has all the benefits of being situated beside a large river including plenty of swimming spots, fish, a boat ramp, beautiful views and an opportunity for birdwatching. 

Free camping at Aysons Campground

Free camping is permitted in the large grassy area alongside the Campaspe River, but not between the bollards and the water. There is plenty of room for lots of campers to pitch tents and park caravans/RVs. 

A large undercover area with a concrete floor is a great place to set up camp chairs and tables for a picnic. There are no provided tables or seating within the undercover area, and fires/barbecues are not permitted within the shelter. 

There is a toilet block here for visitor use, BYO toilet paper just in case. 

Non-potable water is also available, as well as a dump point for caravans. 

Swimming at Aysons Campground

Aysons Campground is a great spot for swimming in the beautiful Campaspe River. The boat ramp makes a nice gradual entry point to the river, and you'll find plenty of other clear spots on the bank to enter the water. Swimmers must be wary of submerged objects in the Campaspe River, as there are tree stumps scattered throughout the river. Depending on water levels, you will be able to see many of these stumps poking out of the water. 


The gorgeous Campaspe River runs from the Great Dividing Range in the south to the Murray River in the north, travelling for approximately 150 kilometres. There are many fantastic spots along the Campaspe River for visitors to enjoy, including here at Aysons Campground!

Some other great places to check out along the Campaspe River include:



  • Camping is a great way to explore the Victorian Goldfields. Many campgrounds are located close to interesting attractions and historic sites, and the Goldfields region is certainly not lacking in fascinating things to discover.
